So as promised, here directions on how to make korker bows. I just love these! They are a very inexpensive way to make your little one stand out and look girly. Especially if your little one doesnt have hair yet. And in that case, all you need is a plain headband to attach them to.
What you need:
approximately 14 mini korkers about 2.5 inches each (see first step on how to make these)
a few wooden dowels (you can find them in the craft section at Wal-Mart for about 1-2$ depending on size)
clothes pins or something to secure the ends of the dowels when they are baking
Step 1: Wrap ribbon on wood dowel (1/4″ in diameter), secure ends using wood clips, bake in the oven 250 degree for about 30 minutes (every oven is different. unwrap the end to see if it’s done). * when wrapping the ribbon, its ok to slightly overlap but it should look just like a candy cane. Once they are done, take them out of the oven to cool and cut into 2.5 inch long pieces (cut unstretched) then seal the end. To seal the end just take a lighter and singe the end or use a fray check
Step 2: set aside 14 pieces for your bow
Step 3:Take the first ribbon pull straight, use clips to secure the ends (so both hands free). Put a little bit of hot glue in center, then get the 2nd
korker and glue it on first to form a cross, then take your next piece and add it to make a flower like pattern, do this over and over until you have used all your mini korkers.Basically, balance all the korker pieces just like flower petals.
Step 4: Remove all the clothes pins, fluff the korkers up.
Step 5: Glue your korker bow, on to your clip (you have many options of clips but I prefer the single prong alligator clip) because my daughter has fine hair.
